    I love my 464 in the Laminate stock. Heavy trigger. Haven’t found anything yet on how to lighten it. Great video, thanks.

    Can you still get these?? They’re sold out here in Canada??

    I do enjoy shooting with lever action rifles, I mostly enjoy my 45 Colt powered Winchester and my Henry Frontier which is in .22 Magnum.
    Oh, I almost forgot to say, ( my main thought, actually ) that I can’t find a Mossberg 464 here in Canada at present, but when I do I will see if I can make it part of my collection, oh yes,
    in 30/30 for me!

    Possible contender to replace my old Marlin .44 if they start to do them in pistol calibres. Especially with the recent Marlin quality issues when Remington acquired them and the current availability issues until Ruger, who now own Marlin after the demise of Remington, get them into production. Mossberg, as you said, have a golden opportunity to sell a lot of them with Marlin temporarily? out of the way.

    Hornady LeverEvolution have used them for years.

    Is it me, or is the safety switch not working on that rifle? It was in both forward and rear positions, and the trigger still dropped the hammer. Just wondering

    I suppose Mossberg has discontinued the 464, it’s completely gone from their website.

    Have you experienced any feeding malfunctions since this video? I’ve viewed four separate Mossberg 464 videos and they rant about the feed issues.

    I ordered a 464 in walnut and blued metal. I must say these are handsome rifles. I cycled it empty 150 times just to loosen the action up, Came with superb Williams sights. Easily adjustable and really great viewplane. Cleaned up the shipping grease and oiled as usual.

    Took it the range yesterday and shot 5 rounds each of 3 different manufacturers – Federal Powershok 170s, Hornady FTX 160gr, Win SuperX 170gr. After adjusting the irons a touch, all 3 types shot superbly. No failed ejection, no failed loading etc.Federals worked best in this one with 1.5" groups at 50yds.

    I have a feeling that the guys who struggle with these rifles are being to rough with their ejection sequence. Many are short cycling I noticed. Bad move. FYI – These are brand new and need time to wear in. I was smooth with my process and it worked perfectly. Sighted in 1.75" high at 50 for a 160 yd zero. That lets me simply aim and shoot at any yardage under 200yds.

    I left my 350 Legend in the truck and took this with iron sights.

    Shot a 10 pt Buck yesterday after the range at 125yds with Federal 170gr. These bad reviews are guys who seem to not know how to use leverguns. My buddy bought one too and had the same results. Yours seemed to have cycled just as well as mine. It’ll only get better.

    Thanks for your review. I have a great levergun because of it.
